Why No Product Key button for Vista CTP builds?

J

Jesse MacD

Hi!

I just got an MSDN subscription and downloaded Vista Build 5308, but I
noticed there was no button next to the download button for obtaining a
product key. Where do a get a key for it if I haven't gotten my package
yet. Do I just use one from one of the other Beta 1 builds? They do have
the 'Obtain a Product Key' button on their pages.

Thanks for helping a newbie out!

Jesse,

I am not familiar with MSDN but maybe if you went into the MSDN newsgroups a
regular subscriber could help out.

If you have a MSDN subscription, click "Product Keys" on this page.

Applied but still waiting to be accepted for the Vista Beta Testing group.
Can't wait to be able to play and help make it even better.

Yeah, I was able to get it. I guess the Product Key server being down on
Saturday didn't help things!

Thanks again!

Just to let you know, there are 4 versions of Vista on 5308. Home Basic,
Home Premium, Business, and Ultimate. It may ask you which one you want when
you load it on your computer.
